Hello! My name is Tianna Baird and I am a Pre-K teacher at St. Columbkille!  I am excited to be a part of the Holy Family community! Although this is my first year in Holy Family, it is my fourth year teaching! I am a 2017 Loras graduate but grew up in Florida! I absolutely love everything Disney! My husband and I love to do theatre together; he is more of the tech, sound, and lights person while I am more of the dancer and actor! I also love to craft, bake, and tap dance whenever I can!

Hi, my name is Mrs. Juanita Burke. I have been teaching 1st grade at St. Columbkille’s for the past 13 years. Prior to that, I taught 1st grade at St. Joseph the Worker. I love teaching this age group, it is so gratifying to see the growth they make by the end of the year. It’s pretty amazing! My husband Tom and I have three children. My family is full of teachers. Our daughter Erin Palm teaches 1st grade at Our Lady of Guadalupe, while her husband teaches in the Western Dubuque School District. Our middle son, Chris, teaches 8th grade Math at Roosevelt Middle School, whose wife also teaches there. Our youngest son Kyle is a firefighter with the city of Dubuque, and his wife teaches at Lincoln. We have been blessed with seven grandchildren that keep us very busy, Olivia, Aidan, Declan, Max, Grace, Murphy, and a new granddaughter Matilda that was born August 28. When I have some spare time, I enjoy walking, reading, and crafting.

Hi!  My name is Genny Choinka, and I am the new 5th grade ELA and Social Studies teacher.  I am originally from Saint Charles, MO, which is right outside of St. Louis.  This means I am a major fan of the STL Cardinals and STL Blues!  I recently moved to Platteville, WI to be near my fiance.  He currently serves as a FOCUS missionary at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville.  Last year, I completed a year of missionary teaching with Seton Teaching Fellows in Bronx, NY.  Needless to say, my fiance and I were getting pretty tired of being long distance, so I made the move to Platteville and was blessed with the opportunity to join the Holy Family family.  In addition to my love of STL sports, I also love coffee, reading, and baking sweet treats.  While I love teaching ELA and Social Studies, Religion will always be my favorite subject to share with the students.  I am very excited to see what the rest of this year will hold with these incredible 5th graders!

Hi, I am Michele Colbert. I have taught at St. Columbkille for 37 years. I have taught 1st through 4th grades. It is always impressive (and a bit scary), how many students I have taught that are now sending their children to St. Columbkille. I am currently teaching second which is my favorite. It is such a pleasure to prepare students for 2 sacraments and watch them grow in their faith along the way. Second grade is also when students start to pick out their favorite chapter books and really form life-long reading skills. I like having a hand in that.

My husband and I live a little south of Dubuque. We both like to garden and spend time with our families. I enjoy planting flowers and vegetables. When I have time you will find me in the kitchen baking and cooking. I enjoy trying out new recipes.

I am very excited for this year to meet many new students and parents and to facilitate my students making new friends.  I have been so proud of how students have handled the masks and heat.

Hi! My name is Megan Collins. I was born and raised in Dubuque, Ia with my parents and 5 siblings. I have attended Catholic school my entire life, including St. Columbkille’s! I graduated high school from Wahlert and graduated from Loras College this past May. I am in my first-year teaching and I am overjoyed to be back at St. Columbkille’s in Kindergarten. Outside of teaching, I am a dance teacher at Studio 5678. I have been involved in dance since I was in 3rd grade and have been a dance teacher since I was in 8th grade. In my free time I like spending time with my family and friends, being outside, and watching movies. I look forward to growing in my Catholic faith and being able to help students to be successful inside and outside of the classroom.

I still remember my dad asking me, “What do you want to do?”  My response was instantaneous – “I want to teach.”  That was over 30 years ago and I am still doing what I love.  Seasons have come and gone, as have my students, and every year I’ve enjoyed the journey.  I have learned so much from my students and look forward to making even more memories here at St. Columbkille.  When I am not teaching, my husband, Dave, and I enjoy being empty nesters.  We bought a camper this past summer and we are learning the ropes of camping at our nation’s state parks.  We also adopted a cat, Patches, to share our adventures with us.  When I’m not camping I like to scrapbook the many photos that I have taken, bake and decorate cakes, embroider, take long, quiet walks and of course read books!  I’m looking at life a bit differently now and even though I don’t always understand why things happen the way they do, I do know I’m not alone.  Family and friends are an integral part of life and they make each day a wonderful experience. I have had over a half-century of living, learning, laughing and loving.  I can only hope the next half will be as memorable.

Let me tell you a little about myself.  This is my sixth year of teaching, second in Holy Family. I taught for four years in Monticello in a first-grade classroom. I grew up in Iowa City, and after graduating, I attended UNI where I obtained my Elementary Education degree with a minor in Special Education. Afterward, I moved to Cascade to be closer to family. This is where I met my husband (Andy). We have been married for four years and have a three-year-old son Briggs who keeps us VERY busy. We love to do anything outside together. I can’t wait to continue getting to know St. Columbkille families and make wonderful, long last memories with students!

Since completing my master’s degree in Special Education, I have found a relentless desire to serve our students in this area. I also love spending time with my family, traveling, and cheering on the Packers, Cubs, and Hawkeyes! However, my favorite athletes live with me. My children are entering 8th, 10th, and 11th grades this fall at Mazzuchelli and Wahlert, and I live for watching them play! An interesting fact about me is that I like to bowhunt!

This year marks my 30th year of teaching both in the public and private schools in Iowa and Wisconsin. I have taught at middle school and in the subject area of English, but the majority of my experience has been in high school and in the area of Spanish. I absolutely love being with the students and helping them on their way to life-long learning.

I’ve been an assistant coach for the girls’ tennis team here at Wahlert for two years and in charge of our knitting club. All are welcome even if you’ve never picked up a racket before nor knitting needles. We have enthusiasm and the love of the game for tennis and the passion and a desire to help others in need by donating what we make, whether it be scarves, hats, baby blankets or the like.

Finally, I have been privileged to take students to Spain on 8 different occasions. My favorite part is to see Spain through their eyes for the first time. In 12 days time, they become wiser and their minds are opened to a whole new world and a whole different way of living. The bonds they form with their travel mates and the culture and language authentizes their learning in the classroom and increases their skills by leaps and bounds.

Most importantly, I am truly lucky to have my husband Jim and my two grown sons, Michael and Nathan. They are the center and balance in my life and they make me feel loved and safe. Without my family and my faith in God, I would be lost.

Out of the five schools I’ve taught at, and I mean this sincerely, I’ve never felt so strongly bonded to our community of teachers and staff and what we offer both academically and spiritually to our students. We are always striving to do better for them.

Originally from Dubuque, I am thankful to be teaching in the community in which I was raised and enjoy sharing my love for this beautiful tri-state area with my students. I have also been fortunate to teach and live in the Milwaukee area, which has opened my eyes to the blessings that this close-knit Wahlert community is fortunate to share. My husband, Sean, and I also work with Convivium Urban Farmstead to support their mission of creating community around food, along with our efforts to repurpose unused land into a shared garden space. My personal passion of protecting our shared home translates into both my teaching and personal life, and I love sharing that with my students in the hopes that they learn to share a portion of that passion.

“HOLY COW!!” Where did the years go?

 

This was my thought when I was putting 5th-grade student’s names in the library program.  I remember these children when they started in kindergarten and now they are 1 year away from middle school.  How fast the years have gone by.

In my 41 years of working at St. Columbkille’s I have had the pleasure to see generations of students come through as many parents today were once students here.

My passion is reading which makes my job at St. Columbkille’s School so much fun.

In my spare time I enjoy crocheting, knitting and walking.
